"The journey with Julie was interesting! "
From a speculative inquiry to a life changing award, the journey with Julie Marsh was interesting. Julie kept me informed along the way explaining exactly what was going on and more importantly why. The team that was assembled certainly knew their stuff which meant I got all the necessary support to keep going. Thank you all. 
"I am overwhelmed"
After a medical mishap, I was left in hospital for several days without treatment, and suffered sepsis and septic shock. Placed in a coma and on life support, my family were told that I would not survive. I did survive and very gradually I got a little better and three major and intrusive operations followed, leaving me weak, in pain, unable to work,unable to do housework, gardening, driving, walking my dogs swimming or socialising as I had been used to.It is now almost six years since this happened to me. I was a healthy happy individual before this. It was devastating and is still hard to come to terms with and the health issues and weaknesses that remain are a constant reminder.However, through your skills and hard work you have secured a substantial settlement for me and I am overwhelmed. I am now able to make adaptions and purchases for my home that will make my life a little easier and more comfortable. Without your support, I would never have been able to achieve this. Importantly the failings of medics have been highlighted and my wish is that this leads to better training to ensure others do not suffer as I have.
